and a general strike. crowds have started to gather in cairo's tahrir square. holly williams is in cairo. holly, good morning to you. what's the latest there now? >> good morning, terrell. well, president morsi's opponents are calling this a final warning to the president and his islamist allies. they're expecting tens of thousands of people today, perhaps more. they're angry about two things. first of all, president morsi's power grab of 12 days ago in which he gave himself expanded new authority. secondly, a draft constitution, which we put to a referendum, a popular vote in two weeks time. critics say it gives too prominent a role to islamic shari'a law but fails to protect some basic freedoms. >> despite protests there, if there's a vote on the constitution, will it likely go in president morsi's favor if there's even a vote at all? >> reporter: there's a very good chance that this draft constitution will pass at referendum, in part because many egyptians want stability after two years of political turmoil, and perhaps for that reason, we're seeing some of president morsi's opponents turn t

at 8:30, kim dixon on the payroll tax cut. william mcbride and seth hanlon on >> the president's been talking a lot about taxes lately. as a c.p.a. who practiced tax for years as a member of the wames there's no one who likes to talk about tax more than i do. but, let's be honest, talking about taxes is not going to solve the problem that america faces. we have to turn to the spending side of the ledger. and furthermore, his tax proposal will kill about 700,000 jobs and do harm to the economy, again the wrong direction. host: and that was the new g.o.p. conference secretary voicing her thoughts on the fiscal cliff negotiations yesterday. and we want you to address the issue of what the g.o.p. is raising, which is address the spending problem. 202 is the area code for our numbers. that's our question this morning in this first segment of the "washington journal." you can also contact us via social media and email. you can make a comment on our facebook page, and finally send us a tweet. here is the hill newspaper from this morning. g.o.p. forget tax rates in talks on the deficit
with the deputy secretary of state william burns ahead of tomorrow's historic u.n. general assembly vote on palestinian statehood. the resolution, though, would upgrade the palestinian authority's u.n. status from observer to a nonmember observer state. it is expected to be approved. israel strongly opposes the bid. the person representing the u.s. will be ambassador susan rice who currently is facing a lot of heat over the statements she made about the benghazi attack. will the fire she's facing in washington impact her role in this delicate diplomatic dance at the u.n.? >> i don't think so. these are two different issues. she reps the united states at the u.n., i don't think anybody questions the fact she reps the united states when she's up there. she serves as the president's envoy up there. her standing there is not affected by what's going on here at all. i think what is -- what you see is questions that still exist about benghazi and libya, and i think those will be sorted out. i mean, the end of the day, you know, the fact is what's going on in libya is something that we all have

, thank you for joining us, i'm brian williams, we hope to see you later for "rock center," 10:00, 9:00 central. we hope to see you right back here tomorrow night. good evening. >>> good evening. we begin with the storm watch. not just the rain. it's the flooding and saturation. historically you might recall we've had a lot of damage and injuries during storms like this. one of the questions tonight, can we be better prepared? as for our roadways, it is a slow commute. this is a live look at the 280, 880 interchange in the south bay. you see the headlights those cars are traveling northbound. our live camera network. let's switch over to 880 in oakland. we have live team coverage. marian fav roe joins with us a look at it. we begin with jeff ranieri with the latest. >> we have that new watch that has come out with the national weather service over the past couple hours that a lot of you are going to want to pay attention to. here comes the latest slow system. it is very slow g
are expecting. today william was back at the hospital who is being treated for an acute case of morning sickness. there he was going in earlier today. let's talk about kate first. i mean, this type of morning sickness that she has been suffering from affects 1 in 50 women and occurs more often when the woman is expecting twins. how is kate doing today? >> reporter: that's right. we're told that she will be in there for a few days and after that may need bedrest because what they describe is very acute morning sickness. it's pretty serious and she needs specialized treatment. you mentioned twins. just to look at the front page of one of our england's most conservative papers, could it be twins for kate? now, we don't know this. this is, frankly, speculation and the fact that you get a headline like this shows you how excited the country has become but it is the case, they say, that in cases like this, acute morning sickness, twins are more likely. and there is no history of twins in the middleton family or in the royal family. so we don't think it would necessarily be genetic if it were the case
is victoria soto, jimy williams, an msnbc contributor, and the great joy reid, managing editor of thegrio.com. i want to talk about another war, this one within the gop itself. there's an individual by the name of ken cuccinelli, he's virginia's attorney general who let the anti-obama care charge. he's now running for governor. he's not just far right on policy. he's further right than any republican when it comes to tactics. he's bullied his states board of health into a stance that could force most abortion clinics to close and on climate change he's not only sued the epa, he troo i had to prosecute a university professor for obtaining grant money to study it. correct me if i'm wrong but isn't using the tools of government to suppress dissent the opposite of democratic government. >> talk about doubling down on a losing strategy. if there's one thick that was clear from the 2012 election is there isn't an appetite for this far right politics, and virginia in particular. voting again for president obama and electing a democratic senator. virginia is increasingly a moderate state. we're n
high-profile cases that would help define the rights and benefits of same-sex couples. pete williams is the justice correspondent. he joins me from outside the supreme court. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning, chris. we're wait to go hear whether the court will take either of these two cases. the defense of marriage act passed in 1996 by congress, signed into law by president clinton. and what it says is that for federal law purposes, marriage can exist only between a man and a woman. so that means this in the nine states where same sex marriage is legal, if a same sex couple gets married there, they're considered mayrried for state lw but not federal law and the practical consequence is they are denied about 1,000 federal benefits, tax benefits, survivors benefits, to be covered under health insurance. that sort of thing. it will have to decide whether that law is unconstitutional discrimination, denying those couples equal treatment. what the advocates of overturning it say is never before has the federal government done anything but defer to a state's definition of wha
. joining me now is chris geidner. the man who knows the supreme court inside and out, pete williams. pete, good to have you with us. break it down. which cases are we talking about, and how quickly might we find out whether they will move forward? >> reporter: well, if they're going to take any of these cases, thomas, it's very likely we'll find out this afternoon. and i think the most likely event here is that they will grant one of the cases that challenges the federal defense of marriage act. passed in 1966 by congress signed by president clinton, it defines marriage as for federal law purposes as only the legal union of one man and one woman. now, the practical effect of that is that in the nine states that now grant or soon will grant same-sex couples the legal right to get married, those couples are legally married under state law, but the federal government doesn't recognize their marriage, which means that they can't get survivors' benefits, they don't get tax benefits, they don't get social security benefits. about 1,000 benefits in all that are the result of this federal law tha
-same-sex proposition 8. as pete williams tells us now, we'll have to wait a little longer. >> craig, it was quite an anti-climax friday. waiting all day expecting we'd hear something from the supreme court on what they would take and an order's list that had just two cases on that had to do with patents and pan patenting n genes. it's impossible to know for sure. quite likely that the justices want more time to discuss these cases. so, they'll reschedule this for perhaps their next closed door conference which is this coming friday. that sometimes happens. the voting rights act case, for example, which was granted earlier in november. they put on several successive lists before they finally decided to grant it. so, that's one possibility. it's also possible that they're not going to take some of these cases. but on friday, all the supreme court announces is cases that it will grant, not cases it will deny. we'll get the denials list that's ready this coming monday. so, that will be the next place where we'll watch to the see whether they denied any of these cases and it's also not out of the real

that could ultimately define marriage under federal law. william la jeunesse following this story out of los angeles now. william, what's happening today? good morning. >> reporter: well is the federal law that defines marriage as a union of a man and woman constitutional? the nine justices today will decide if they want to take that case up this spring. now there are 10 pending cases involving gay rights before the court. eight involve challenges to the defense of marriage act known as doma. it bars the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, and, it says one state does not have to recognize the same-sex marriage of another state. it was signed into law in 1996 but then president clinton, it was passed by large majorities in both houses including large margins of democrats. president obama was before the law before he was against it. but now the administration is pushing the supreme court bill to overturn doma as well. already two lower courts said the clause that bars same sex spouses from receiving federal benefits like social security, survivor benefits, insurance, violat

the people want to get something done will be in the words of tennessee williams, relying on the kindness of strangers. anyone in the minority will be able to demand not just a majority of senators to pass a bill but a super majority of 60. that means we're not going to see much get done, are we? the other way to make the government more active, of course, more responsive to the country's need is for one party to do a bang-up job, manifestly good job that people rewarded with a strong super majority of support in the u.s. senate. along with a majority in the house and regularly re-electing democratic or republican presidents.
